"All the ones that we win are probably going to be just like this," Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings said. "They're probably going to be dog fight, grind-it-out games where we've got to make some plays down the stretch and at the end. And I'm proud of our team because we're getting better at doing that."
"We were just trying to make sure we weren't giving them any easy shots in transition and contest what we could on the perimeter," he said. "That was the game plan, and we executed it."
